The new morning people are basically the same setup as the old morning show, two guys and one girl. My issue with this new program is that the schtick for this particular show seems to revolve around the girl being a "basic white bitch". Beyond the fact that it gets old fast, I'm wondering why this is the way for women to make a place for them in morning radio. Let's self deprecate and dumb ourselves down to being a "basic bitch" so that you can make a place for yourself in this morning show, ignoring the fact that your place is basically to be a punching bag and talk about all of the oh-so-stupid things you do as a woman. She even sounds stupid. It drives me insane because all of her talking points and segments on the show in the morning are strictly about celebrity gossip, weighing in on things that other "basic bitches" do, or laughing at herself as she talks about how dumb she is. Maybe she really is just a dumb woman, I don't know her, but it sucks that the morning show felt they needed a dumb woman to round out their morning team.
And when did it become a bragging right to be a "basic bitch"? When did that become something that any woman should be proud of or strive for? I don't understand. I would hope my daughter doesn't grow up and list her crowning achievement as being a "basic bitch". It's like listening to a whole morning show where a girl is playing dumb to get a boy's attention. Why are we still doing things like this as adults? It makes me really hate listening to the morning show, because I want to be supportive of women in a male dominated industry, but not when they just get in there and make women sound stupid. Half of the time when she's talking all I can think is "Wow....she is SO annoying". But, I guess she's doing something right because she got the job.
